He’s come to kill me.

I’m a user and abuser of my own body. In my darkest hour I sold my soul to the devil and now I must pay the price. With his gun to my head I have no choice but to listen and obey, but I refuse to go down easily. Nothing is stronger than the will to survive. My instincts kicked into full gear the second he stepped into my motel room.

Except when I look at him I see my own heart staring back at me. A history tainted by blood.

I don’t know his name, but I know he wants me. To save myself I’ll sacrifice my sanity. My body. My soul. Something tells me the x-shaped scar that marks his eye is the only escape I have. He is Mr. X: the man who comes to claim my life. Can I save myself before he demands my heart?

I am really starting to love these dark romances. The darker the better, and Mr. X. is THAT book for me. It was SO good! I tore through it in like two days. It was exciting and sexy and downright scary. I loved it!

The best part of this entire book was X (DUH!) and how he became the cold-blooded killer he is presently. Well...he was already a killer, but now he is beyond that. I can't even explain it because he is so COLD and fucking deadly, there are no words besides the ones I just used and they don't do it justice. But I loved the flashbacks the most. Wild fed them to us with a spoon made for a baby which drove me crazy, in a good way. Some readers might find X too violent and ruthless to be a love interest, but I strongly disagree. There is someone in the world for everyone, I believe, even killers.

Jay was this drug-addicted stripper/hooker who had suppressed all the memories of her past. So when X literally kicks down the door to her life, she has no idea who he is. Albeit, he is absolutely nothing like he was when she knew him before, but she does know him and X is just waiting for her to remember. I jumped back and forth between feeling sorry for Jay and hating her stupid ass. But most of the time, I felt bad for her and how hopeless she was. A drug-addicted stripper/hooker? You've hit rock bottom, honey. Can it get any worse? She didn't think so until X came along, and it got a WHOLE lot worse.

There was lots of action in this book (who doesn't love a good shoot-out?). One thing that pissed me off about Jay was that when the bullets started flying, she always wanted to run away from the one person not shooting at her. She eventually got over it and realized X was on her side, but damn it was a long time coming. And the sex scenes between her and X? YEEEESSSSSSS. Hardcore and hot, just as expected of this dark romance.

The ending was satisfying and I was pretty much pissed that it was over. I wanted more. Why can't this be a series? *Le Sigh* The world is so evil sometimes.

If you are someone who loves dark romances and doesn't cringe at the mention of a gun, then this book is for you. Warning, it is VIOLENT, but I enjoyed every moment of it. Go out and get this one!
